Avatar Help & Questions #6 (note: you need 101 posts to have a custom avatar!)


WHAT ARE AVATARS?
Avatars are the images under a member's username in their posts. You will need 101 posts to add a custom avatar. We have several default avatars available for new users.




STANDARD AVATARS
When a poster has not reached 101 posts yet, they can make use of our selection of default or standard avatars. To give each new poster the chance to have an icon that fits their interest, we allow each board to have five avatars to represent their board.

How do they get chosen?
Standard Avatars get chosen every other year for existing boards, and when a board becomes permanent for new boards. A thread is then opened and topped in which everyone who wants can submit their avatars for consideration. When the deadline has passed, the moderators of that specific board will send their top 10 to one of the Avatars Managers and a poll will be opened on the Standard Avatars board to vote for the final five. When that's done, those avatars will be uploaded and ready to use.

Where do I find them?
When you go to your User CP, in the sidebar one of the options is "edit avatar". There you will see a drop down menu with all the categories of boards we have on Fan Forum. So if you're looking for a specific board, you should look under the category that the board is listed under. The avatars are listed in alphabetical order for your convenience.



If you have any other questions about standard avatars, feel free to contact the Avatars Manager: Sophia.





CUSTOM AVATARS
You need to have made 101 posts in order to add a custom made avatar. The size limit for an avatar is 100 x 100 pixels and a maximum of 100 KB. Once you have reached 101 posts, an option to upload a custom avatar from your computer will be added (it may take up to 24 hours for this to start) in your User CP page in the edit avatar section. When you upload a new avatar, it can take up to an hour for you or others to be able to see it. It's because custom avatars are only uploaded to one server initially and it takes time for it to be copied to the other server (whenever you connect to Fan Forum - TV Shows, Music, Movies, Female Celebrities, Male Celebrities, Spoilers, & More... now, you can end up on either of the two servers).





FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How do I add an avatar?
1. Go to 'USER CP'
2. Go to 'Edit Avatar'
3. Select a Default avatar OR Upload your avatar.
4. Click 'Save changes'.

Q: I have 101 posts but there's no option to add a custom avatar. What's the problem?
A: It can take up to 24 hours for the option to show up, but it will be there eventually.

Q: Where can I find avatars to use, if I can't/don't want to make them myself?
A: There are usually threads for avatars on each individual board, but you can also find some on the Icons, Mood Themes, and Avatars Thread (for ready made Avatars) or the Requests Thread (where you can Request a specific Avatar) on the Fan Art Board. On that board you'll also be able to find a Tutorials thread where you can find guidelines to help you make your own avatar.

Q: Do I have to give credit to the person who made the avatar?
A: It is common courtesy to credit the person who made the avatar you are using in your signature. It is not an actual rule, but most people do it any way. If the creators of the avatars state somewhere in their post or their personal thread or an external site to give credit, please do so.

Q: How big can my avatar be?
A: an avatar can be 100 x 100 pixels or 100 KB (whichever is smaller)

Q: The avatar I want to use is too big with regards to the file size that allows. Is there anything I can do?
A: Yes. You can try crunching it here or here. Simply save the avatar to your computer and upload it into the appropriate cruncher and it will provide a smaller file.


Q: Is there anything that is not allowed in an avatar?
A: Avatars should be PG-13, just like the rest of the content on Fan Forum. This means no nudity or explicit violence. Also, if a word gets censored when you try to post it, you shouldn't use that word in an avatar either. Your icon must also follow the spoiler policy of Fanforum and cannot be considered an attack on a fandom, relationship or character.

Q: What file types can my avatar be?

A: will only accept the following file types:
  • .jpeg
  • .png
  • .gif
If you would like to use an avatar that is not one of the aforementioned three, try visiting the Image Converter at PictureResize to convert the image for free.



If you have any other questions, please ask them on this thread.



Note: This thread should be restarted by an Avatars Manager or Info Center Moderator. Thanks.
